Molly the moth lives in the back of an old wardrobe. She loves her home and her family but she yearns for adventure. So by day she helps her mother look after the larvae, and by night she prepares for her space mission to the MOON!

It's no easy feat for a little moth to fly all the way to the moon - but Molly is not a moth to give up on her dreams.

I read this book to my two year old daughter and we both really enjoyed it, it held my daughters attention. The storyline is well written and keeps you in suspense as the story progresses. The illustrations are very well designed and look very realistic. I would recommend this story to parents with toddlers who want to move on from "baby" type hooks.

A wonderful story with a message to "never give up", my eldest loved this book. Great pictures that aren't too busy and the language used is nice and soothing making it perfect for bedtime. We particularly liked the fact that Molly the moth was strong and female which has encouraged my daughter to play astronauts even more.

We loved this book and it's a new favourite for my two children who were already very interested in space! A lovely little story and beautifully presented book! New bedtime classic.

My 6 year old daughter really enjoyed reading this book. It is well written and has a lovely story about a little moth that just wants to go on an adventure and nobody is going to stop her from reaching her goal. We really enjoyed looking at all the illustrations and talking about the meaning of the book.

Molly is small, she is a moth after all, and she is repeatedly told that her aspirations of visiting the moon will forever remain a dream. Visiting the moon is no easy adventure particularly when you’re as small as Molly but that does not deter her. You see Molly is determined, she has self belief and as the story progresses she gets stronger and more confident. There are failed attempts, some a little comical but Duncan Beedie’s inclusion of such attempts are important in sharing with young readers that with determination AND hard work you can do great things. Also, a failed attempt shouldn’t simply be seen as something that went terribly wrong but a positive lesson that needs to be reflected upon. Duncan Beedie has skillfully written and illustrated a super book. The book highlights the perseverance Molly has. The illustrations through out are brilliant and I’m so pleased that my little boy has met a character as driven and focused as Molly.

This is a really endearing story of determination and dedication to a goal. Molly the moth dreams of flying to the moon but everyone around her doubts her abilities. Despite this, and some disastrous first attempts, she doesn't give up on her dream. The illustrations are uncluttered but still have enough detail to support the storytelling and give you lots to look at. My three year old really liked the pictures, and the exciting countdown to her first mission! This is a great book for teaching little ones perseverance.

I borrowed this book from the library because my little girl is called Molly. This book is a great story about a Moth not giving up on her dream to go to the moon. The morale of the story is super great and my kids loved it. It's an interesting story and the illustrations are lovely.

We saw this book in the library. It is a lovely tale about Molly the moth, who lives in the back of an old wardrobe, but yearns for adventure. The book is aimed at 5 and under I'd say. 
The illustrations are good too. It is worth a read.

This book is lovely with a clear message about perseverance, a lovely story and beautiful illustrations. My little boy loves the moon so I expected him to be really excited by this book but he wasn't. I think it might be one to try again in a few months. The vocabulary in this book seemed more varied and advanced that many children's books (eg. siblings, declared). I look forward to reading it again with my little one in a few months.

My little boy has been doing about space at nursery so this book immediately caught his attention. Molly kept giggling as the character in the book has the same name which was great. I liked the message to not give up even if someone tells you, it cant be done.

The book has lovely illustrations and is one that my son keeps picking to read again at bedtime

Given that my daughter loves the moon she wasn't quite as taken with this book as I had expected. It is well written, with a nice story to entertain older children as well as younger ones (it links a little to the moon landings). The pictures are good, in a sort of comic strip style. I think it might be one to put on the shelf and bring back out when she's a little older.
